Chester College is at risk of closing their doors forever unless $500,000 - $900,000 can be raised. We need management who cares about the well being of the school and not the money that they can make by selling it. With dedicated professors and students we need a president just as loyal. Faculty and staff have already sacrificed their salaries to keep this going but we need help! Please go to www.chestercollege.edu and press donate, help save our school!!!!  As a small arts college our students are unique and have found a home here.  We have 17 days to do this, please let's make this happen!

donations can be made at www.chestercollege.edu   in the bottom right "donate" section   ------also as a non-profit college any donations will be a tax write off for you. AND if we close down donations will be returned.

      Good kids have been done an injustice by President & trustees - investigation by State officials should be done of frauds who were entrusted with the welfare of students.

      I am a member of Franconia College's final graduating class (December, 1977). Two months after I received my diploma, the school closed.

      The times are radically different, but it looks to me like the visions of Franconia and Chester are similar, visions all too rare in our culture.

      My grandson is a student at the college, loves it, and the school has provided a very positive experience for him and many others. Please do everything to save the school.
